measure of a morning.

Piles of sawdust and number of muddy shoes.

Number of bum sweaters washed, lanolized and flopping on the line.

Grey hairs counted, smoothed behind ears.

Lessons navigated, nerves soothed, negotiations handled.

Precarious stacks of dirty dishes, bedazzling surfaces.

Dental appointments hefted and slotted in to different days.

Giddy edits contemplated by an energized me.

Belly laughs pulled from a stoic baby.

Our units differ from yours and yours from mine.

The measure of our morning.
